Educating and enriching our students’ lives through music could not happen without the generous support of our extended OYO family of supporters. At our core, we believe that music education and enrichment should be accessible to all therefore we endeavor to keep tuition affordable for families and, as well, offer need-based tuition aid through SCORE.
Tuition covers approximately 60% of operating expenses. Therefore, we absolutely rely on sponsors and donors to further support our orchestra program and enable OYO to offer essential opportunities.
We invite you to join supporters, past and present, that have helped OYO become the premier education program it is today!
If you would like to learn more details about how OYO spends the resources that you donate, you may review our recent Cultural Data Project report . This is a standardized reporting format for non-profit arts and cultural organizations. We also make available our most recent tax return. Form 990 is an annual report that federally tax-exempt organizations must file with the IRS.
OYO is committed to data transparency and has earned the Platinum participation level through the GuideStar Exchange.
